A sense of pride for something complete
You accomplished a good thing that’s really neat
Before it started you didn’t know
How it would turn out but you gave it a go

Concerned nervous taking on something worthy
Fear it will go south get all topsy-turvy
Will it be a mish mash and a big mess
Missing the chance to bring happiness

As you get into whatever it is
Realizing the traction some wow and gee whiz
This may be OK you say for your hearing
Everyone listening getting their bearing

It’s coming together completion in sight
This thing just might be dynamite
Suddenly over on the other side
Now you can say that was a good ride

Each person pulled from their inside
Following that force fills you with pride
Anticipating a challenge that’s new
Recall the glow of what you might do

What are you working on that might bring a great deal of happiness to others?
What hesitation have you had?
What are you concerned or fearful about?
What can you draw on from your past that will generate faith in your current creation?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
